Bigwigs who eyes on Kolar Gold Fields (KGF) approach Rocky to kill Garuda, the one who controls KGF. Rocky goes to KGF to kill Garuda. What are the hardships he faced in his journey ? Did he kills Garuda ? forms the story.
Yash looks menacing as dreaded gangster. He showcased intense performance throughout the film. He has perfect physique and is a treat to watch him in mass avatar.
Heroine Srinidhi Shetty looks beautiful and is adequate in her role. Milky Beauty Tamannah sizzles in a special song and adds glamour to the film. Actors who did the roles as ruthless villains are apt.
Lavish Production Values
Lacks depth in characters
Director Prashanth Neel comes up with a crime story setup in an interesting backdrop. Right from the word go, Director gets into the story and showcases the rise of Rocky with brilliant action blocks. After an impressive start film suffers with slow-pace proceedings and gets back on track after film moves to 'KGF'. Since then, Director succeeds in engaging audiences with intriguing scenes dealt in an extravagant manner. Climax which is set in a procession before Kaali mata is one of the highlights of the film.
Film is rich technically. Art work, Production values are extraordinary. Though Music by Ravi Basrur is average, he has given very good BGM which enhances many scenes. Cinematography by Bhuvan Gowda is another major highlight of the film. He perfectly carried the mood throughout the film with rusty visuals. Dubbing is neat. Producer Sai Korrapati has taken enough care to bring this film in telugu without losing it's soul with very good dialogues.
Watch 'KGF' for its extravagant visuals and intense action.
Rating : 3/5
